Social Media – So Easy a Caveman Can Do It, Right?

“Geico so easy, a caveman can do it” is in the past.  I used to enjoy those commercials, but Geico cannot use that slogan forever.  Advertising is not that simple.  It needs to fresh and to keep up with the current trends.

Is Social Media Marketing so easy a caveman can do it?  A couple of months ago, I began my quest on becoming a social media manager through a website called paidsocialmediajobs.com.  I went through all the training, as well as setting up profiles on all the major social media networks.  I’m going to be making money instantly, right?

Just like learning any other job, IT TAKES TIME.  Paid Social Media Jobs even tells you that, which is great.  There is a lot to learn about social media, and setting up profiles, as well as being active on them, is just the beginning.  Experience is what will get you to the next level.  Right now, social media is a part time job, and in the future, I hope to turn it into full-time.  I still have bills, food costs, fuel costs, cell phone bill, etc.  My advice, if you are in the same boat as me, is to keep gaining experience.  Socialize with other users on social media.  Post and share at least 10 things a day.  Last tip, set up good, full profiles on job market sites in order to get your name out there.

If you know anyone who is an aspiring social media manager like myself, please share this blog with them, and inform them this business takes time.  It does not happen overnight!

Thanks everybody!  Have a great weekend!
